Three non-league teams have been drawn against Premier League opposition in the FA Cup 3rd Round.
Solihull Moors have been handed a home tie with Arsenal – provided they can see off Blackpool in a second round replay. The two sides drew on Friday.
Also hoping for a replay win will be Southport. The Sandgrounders will be at home to Tottenham Hotspur if they can defeat League Two side Tranmere Rovers in a replay. The two sides drew 1-1 at the weekend.
